Teatulia Tea and Novo Coffee named Best of Denver 2009 - Westword Magazine
Denver’s Best Coffee & Tea (Westword Magazine, 2009), Novo Coffee and Teatulia Tea, both of Denver, Colorado, have partnered up to bring you the finest hot beverages around.
Both Novo & Teatulia have an unparalleled connection and commitment to origin – Novo through strong relationships with farmers throughout the coffee-producing world that have been cultivated over the past decade and Teatulia, which sources all of its Tea from one single incredible Tea Garden.
Truly sustainable, Teatulia Teas are grown using a next-level natural farming method on a cooperative garden in the North of Bangladesh. The Teatulia Tea garden has regenerated the ecosystem in the entire region and lifted thousands of women, men & children out of poverty. Novo sources from one of the few woman-owned farms in Ethiopia, among others, and is committed to sourcing from growers who practice sustainable farming methods.
Novo Coffee & Teatulia Tea’s commitment to quality and taste results in an elevated drinking experience. Novo through coffees with unparalleled richness, complexity and subtlety and Teatulia through smooth, highly drinkable orthodox Teas. Neither company adds artificial flavors or colors that would detract from the purity of their beans & leaves.
Look for a combined Holiday Gift Pack coming soon! 3 options of exquisite Teatulia Tea and Novo Coffee – the perfect gift for any Coffee and/or Tea lover!
We are very excited and proud to share with you the Tetulia packaging. This canister is compostable (breaks down naturally within 150 days) and holds 16 biodegradable silken pyramid tea bags.
We went back and fourth several times on packaging between tins, boxes, and everything in between. When we stumbled upon this concept we knew immediately this was the route we wanted to go. Of course we wanted something that was kind to our earth, but sometimes it can be challenging to have an earth-friendly yet attractive package…. but we think we married the two just perfectly. Keep your eyes open for these on the shelves of your favorite tea stores, or you can buy them online at the Tetulia Tea Store.
If you prefer loose leaf tea, don’t worry, we have that on the Tetulia Tea Store, also.
Please share your thoughts on your new packaging and also, let us know what your favorite earth-friendly packages are!
Now that I have gotten somewhat past the initial shock of these majestic surroundings, let me introduce you to a whole new shock – the incredible natural farming methods used in this tea garden. First let me start by saying that natural farming doesn’t always mean organic, and vice versa. In this case, Tetulia is USDA certified organic, but also employs the natural farming methods of Masanobu Fukuoka.
Masanobu Fukuoka is a trained microbiologist from Japan. After a short while specializing in plant pathology, he soon returned to his family farm to explore the methods of organic, natural farming. The Masanobu Farming method does not require tilling or plowing – natural groundcover is utilized, no chemicals or pesticides are used, weeds are considered part of the ecosystem, and natural, organic trees are used for shade. Not only are all of these wonderful plants used, but insects, animals, and weather all play a part.
Tetulia is the first and possibly only tea garden to use the Fukuoka farming methods. We pride ourselves on bringing you a premium, fresh, clean tasting tea, but we also pride ourselves on nurturing the land and natural resources that allow us to bring you such a fine tea.
“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops,
but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.” – Masanobu Fukuoka
